I was thrilled when I got an email the other day from Craftsy asking me if I'd like to offer my readers a Black Friday 50% off ALL classes ..... YES PLEASE I wrote back! I have done several reviews now and you might have not picked up that class you really wanted. So NOW is the time! If you don't want to read any further then just GO HERE and buy your class. If you have explored the online class offerings, you will have seen there are a ton of quilting class and NON quilting classes. I'm going to... Continue reading

Progress was made yesterday on my Birthday Quilt!

But what you REALLY want to know is... How far along is my Birthday Block quilt! To accompany my photos today, Paul McCartney emailed me and sent me the link to this Live version of the Birthday song (yes.. he really did email me.. I'm SURE... Continue reading

Over the last few years as we were traveling we'd zoom past cotton fields. Sometimes the fluffs were very tiny, and sometimes they looked ready to harvest. The common denominator for this was always the ZOOMING. The fields were on the side of the highway and we never found a good place to stop for a close up look. That all changed a few days ago when Gregg pulled off for a break (coffee, gas, and a side trip!) We were actually headed to the Good Earth Peanut Company just down the road. We had their Virginia grown Peanuts recently... Continue reading

The Shipping Department (Gregg) has a little product review for you! We recently got the Belkin Portable Stage to try out for all the teaching we do. It is a versatile but simple stand that holds your tablet in position while you use it as an interactive presentation tool. It might be something to consider if you must have the latest high tech for your guild meetings. The Belkin Portable Stage is very well made and sturdy. It has a solid base with two solid metal arms supporting the tablet tray. The arms lock in position and have a button... Continue reading

Sometimes Treasures come your way and where they end up is not really in our control. A friend wrote me on Facebook and said one of her friends had a treadle she couldn't keep. And this machine was literally 5 minutes from my home. The Shipping Department and I went on over to bring her home. She was well loved at one point, but now needed a new home. What a pretty machine, don't you think? But she needed a lot of work... like a LOT. We have Gregg's grandmother's cabinet, but no machine and treadle. So we examined her... Continue reading
